The restoration of pieces in this way for me is breathing life back into components and bringing vintage back to life, has to be a good thing.
The further we go in time the more we need to keep vintage components going, maybe they are not case fresh and super vintage finds, but it is vintage and putting components back together only makes sure we keep vintage pieces in a State that they are collectible as opposed to sat in drawers and cupboards gathering dust

Breathing life back into vintage has to be a good thing

It's always tough when the name tag / plate is missing. It looks like you've done a terrific job with that card, so congratulations!

Thanks for sharing :-)

Two more on the worktop tonight. Need to get a Tie pilot card before I can fix it. Price tag was covering up a tear on the card so a bit pissed off about that. Working on Ben now.
